The magic of the wines

The magic of the wines of Château des Estanilles
A secret to be shared

Our wines have unique character and flavour, a fine, elegant structure of silky tannins, excellent fruit notes and outstanding ageing potential.

This is thanks to a combination of several factors: the Faugères grape varieties, the rare geology of our schist-dominant area, the south-facing hillsides, vines farmed with respect for nature and its balance, and the knowledge and dedication of artisan winegrowers committed to coaching the very best from their land.
